Recommended by SimpleLab™ for targeted testing of heterotrophic bacteria in drinking water. Heterotrophic bacteria are broadly defined as microorganisms that require organic carbon for growth. They include bacteria, yeasts, and molds and this total heterotrophic bacteria plate count (HPC) test is an excellent way to demonstrate a quantified presence or absence of microbial activity in a water supply. This testing package is particularly recommended for those noticing a musty, moldy, or mildew-like smell or taste in their water or who have noticed microbial growth/biofilm buildup on fixtures.

This SimpleLab water test package provides all required materials to properly collect and submit a sample for certified laboratory testing. Reported results will include detailed, quantified analysis of total heterotrophic bacteria count.

Testing includes: Heterotrophic bacteria.

Report analysis includes: Health-risk assessment, potential plumbing and aesthetic issues (taste, odor, appearance), and comparison to any regulatory limits and/or public health guidelines.

Informational testing

By default, this broad-based chemical and biological water quality screening package is designed to provide you with general information about your water for personal use. Each report includes analysis for specific numerical concentration levels of each contaminant and details about the potential sources and health effects associated with each parameter. We are not medical doctors and SimpleLab does not provide medical advice. For medical concerns always consult your doctor. As an informational water quality test, this package is not meant for state or federal compliance water testing. If you or your organization requires compliance with State or Federal Law, or compliance with a particular regulatory requirement then you must contact our support team and we will use the appropriate certified laboratory facilities to ensure your compliance testing requirements are met.
